Stolen In Red Hook: Solanum Quitoense

I honestly do not know where to start with this item (which I found on Union Street this afternoon) so I will leave you with these three points:

  1. The amount of detail in this flier is truly astonishing. I am particularly impressed with the description of the flavor of the fruit this plant life bears and the photograph of the glove found at the scene of the crime. I won’t even go into the root knot nematodes (because until today I had no idea what they are, much less the fact they existed).
  2. “the pimple whisperer” = brilliant
  3. “hew-haw” = just made into my vocabulary
  4. Okay that makes four points. In any case I sincerely hope Emma (AKA: “the pimple whisperer”) gets her Solanum Quitoense back— and soon!

This, one of the finest street sofas I have encountered in a long time, hails from West 9 Street in Red Hook. Note the baseball bat nestled under the cushions.

This well-appointed al fresco living room suite (found either Columbia Street or Van Brunt in Red Hook) comes from Gothamist‘s very own Jake Dobkin who writes:

i feel sad that bob didn’t live to witness my discover of the holy grail of street couches– the dockside three piece sectional!

Agreed. On that note I have contributed a number of north Brooklyn street couches for Robert Guskind’s upcoming memorial service including a real beauty I found in front of Radiac on Grand Street last summer. Anyone have an extra Geiger counter laying around?
